In October 2008, Goddard hosted The Discovery Channel's "Young Scientist Challenge." The challenge brought ten middle school student finalists from across the country to vie for the title of "America’s Top Young Scientist" and a chance to win a U.S. Savings Bond. Five teacher finalists contended for recognition as “America’s Top Science Teacher.”

Now, the documentary filmed at the event is ready to air! Viewers can catch the documentary on The Discovery Channel at 8 p.m., ET, on Sunday, January 18.

The Discovery Channel selected Goddard as the host site in support of the show’s theme, "The Science of Space." The contest provided an opportunity to showcase the unique work accomplished at Goddard. The competition was created to inspire middle school students to continue their passion for science as they grow.

Check your local listings and tune in on Sunday, January 18, to see Goddard under the lights! For more information on the challenge, please read the stories below. Fair warning: They will reveal how the program ends!
